    Hi.

    Just bought an m-waves card and server. Currently i have only a single cat5 from stagerack to FOH. Can i plug ny computer into network bridge on The surface and reach The soundgrid server this way? Without interupting the surface connection of course. how about recording via soundgrid driver, should there be bandwidth enough for this? (gigabit connection of course)

    I’m looking quite much forward to using the waves plugs at FOH :-P

    Regards, Tor

    hi!

    yes – that’s possible.

    no problem!
    you have a 3-port switch on the m-waves card ->
    -) one for bridging to the tcp/ip port on the mixrack (tunneling through ACE)
    -) one for connectiong the sg server (live-processing)
    -) one for the recording computer (with the sg driver installed)

    fine ;)

    Yes, I know that, but I was wondering if it was possible to even do the recording/playback through the ACE connection, from the surface. Not that this is expected, but if it works, it would be quite something :)

    no – recording through ace is not possible because of bandwidth limitation.
    but if you want your recording computer at foh, the easiest way is to take a second cat5 cable (foh <-> stage)
    i will do this in the future in that way: recording computer (macmini) on stage, that is remoted from foh macbook (this should work through ace as well because there are no high datarates transmitted/received)

    I don’t know if it will meet your requirements, but you could plug the recording machine into the Waves network at the stage end, and have a laptop at the mix position connected to that machine using remote desktop software. This should allow you to control the recording, while only requiring one cable between stagebox and surface. You would need to experiment to make sure the bandwidth used by this does not affect anything else, but I expect it should work.

    Cheers

    … yes – that’s my plan, too.
    i’ll do the controlling of m macmini on stage by remote desktop through ace.
    it should work cause of the bandwidth that is not sooo high, i think – just control data.
